Harvey Picks The Flicks
Here's something worth setting the DVR for: tonight on Turner Classic Movies, four-time Tony winner and queer patron saint Harvey Fierstein is serving as the "guest programmer" for a night. Beginning at 8pm, Fierstein and TCM host Robert Osborne will discuss his favorite rarely-seen films, following by a showing of four of them. The evening starts with The Catered Affair, the MGM classic on which Fierstein's new Broadway-bound musical, A Catered Affair, is based. Fierstein's other film selections to be aired that night are The Women (1936), The Boy With Green Hair (1948) and The Devil Is A Sissy (1936). I mean, really...who DOESN'T want to see a movie called The Devil Is A Sissy?
